I have spent the morning, with the help of my son, trying to get organised with Zoom. With did this on the telephone I hasten to add - no face-to-face contact. At the end of half an hour I was pretty worn out and, so it seems, was he. He speaks in Computer Speak whereas my following of instructions takes the form of instructions like 'that little plus sign somewhere near the top left of your screen'. I was surprised to find that, after half an hour, when we agreed to leave it until tomorrow for both our sakes, and I switched off to get lunch, a Zoom icon had appeared on my computer. So we have made progress and we are certainly part way there. We will see what tomorrow brings.
In these days of isolation it will be good to chat to my grandchildren and great grandchildren and to chat to friends for a while.
Looking out of the window the sky is blue and the sun is shining but still there is a stiff, cold wind blowing which means that Percy is not all that steady in the wind and I am best staying indoors; it is even too strong to walk in the garden. I understand warmer weather is forecast soon - and it can't come soon enough.
I feel that spirits are being kept up well in Blogland and I do thank people like John (going gently) who is in the thick of it and yet manages to keep us all cheerful as well as his patients. I hope we shall all remember to applaud again at 8pm tonight to show our appreciation to all medical staff everywhere. Keep smiling.
